We Fall; In The Voice of Dylan Thomas

We fall,

We stumble

Unaware.

Until, the

Grim Reaper

Comes, with

His scythe,

Calling our

Name,

Come back to the

Ground, for you

And you and you,

The good, and

The wicked,

The beautiful and

The plain.

    With those words, the Grim Reaper brings each of us back to our humility. Back to the earth. Back to the dust. Back to the ether. Thank you.
